After my day at the Ferry building, I went on a frozen yogurt tour with Chris and Audrey and went to bed early to prepare for my second day in San Francisco. Chris and I planned to explore San Francisco during the morning and then drive to Napa in the afternoon. Since Chris is from the area, there were specific places he wanted to show me – we only had a chance to go to his two favorite spots: the Palace of Fine Arts and the The California Palace of the Legion of Honor. Our first stop was the Legion of Honor, a place built to commemorate Californian soldiers who died in World War I:

The Legion of Honor houses European decorative arts and paintings, ancient art, and one of country’s largest and finest collections of works on paper (prints, drawings, photographs, books). Here are some of my favorite photos:

(There will be a ton of jumping photos throughout the trip updates, just to warn you).

Chihuly has an exhibit at the de Young (starting in July). This sculpture was actually at the a href=””>New York Botanical Gardenin 2006 (one of the first places I visited when I moved to New York).

After visiting the Legion of Honor, Chris and I drove to his favorite spot in San Francisco, the Palace of Fine Arts. The Palace was constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition; initially, they were going to demolish it, but they kept it because of its beauty:

The Palace of Fine Arts is really beautiful when it’s not under construction (they’ve been working on it for a while). While we were walking around, we saw a dog walker with a ton of dogs and I had to take a picture with him:

After visiting the Palace of Fine Arts, Chris and I headed up to Napa…I’ll start posting pictures soon!

OMG, your frozen yogurt wa article is amazing.
I ve never seen things that way you made me want to do my own frozen yogurt tour around the bay!
I may have missed it but I have not seen anything about the yogurt bar on Octavia and Union, just around the corner from our clthing store. They are sooo good and that s a huge success in the district.
Check them out and stop by to let me know what you think.

Have a great day in the beautiful SF!
